Suggest treatment for pilonidal sinus

Hello doctor I am suffering from pilonidal sinus from last one & half years. I met some surgeon. They said surgery is the solution for this. But they also said that there is 10% chance to cure it & 90% chance to recurring. Please tell the best way to clear this. Thank you Pradeep Malik 0000
